Verdict

Presenting Mahler has been reasonably consistent and will enjoy the testing conditions but Getoutwhenyoucan, five times a winner over hurdles, has yet to reach a place in that number of starts over fences. WINTER MAGIC did very well to score over 2m1f at Tipperary as that trip would be his minimum nowadays. He hasn't run since May but hopefully he'll be ready to do himself justice. Black Zero has been out of form but is now back on a realistic mark as is Boher Call, though the latter has yet to prove he stays this far under Rules. Canaly will have found the going too quick during the summer having landed a Wexford handicap in soft ground in March.
